Post the first line from your 25 most recent fanfics and try to find a pattern.

my pen is the barrel of the gun, remind me which side you should be onCollapse )

My analysis:

(!) I always use the third person! Which is weird, because I thought I used the first person at least sometimes. Apparently not.
(") Sometimes speech is my friend, sometimes it isn't.
(£) Sometimes ambiguity is my friend, sometimes it isn't.
($) I tend to start drabbles with longer sentences than I use to start other fics.
(%) First lines that are speech only: 4. First lines in present tense: 20. First lines in past tense: 1. I had no idea it was that biased towards the present tense.
(^) My first lines seem to give a lot away about the characters and relationships in the fic, but not so much about who anyone is or where they are or what's going to happen... All except my Shakespeare fics, which all seem a lot more physical, describing where the characters are and what's going on around them. Weird.
(&) I've pretty much always known this, but... I really don't tend to write about things actually happening. I write about ideas, relationships, characters, atmospheres - nothing really has a plot, as such. I just enjoy describing feelings and ideas too much to trouble myself with events...

This was a really interesting meme, actually. Thanks, speak_me_fair!

This isn't really a thing, but -

Paul Simon, Karine Polwart and James Taylor are the only people who have ever made me want to write songs, but they truly do. I just - I love.

There ain't no doubt in no one's mind
That love's the finest thing around.
Whisper something soft and kind.
And hey babe, the sky's on fire -
I'm dyin', ain't I?
Said I'm goin' to Carolina in my mind.

OK, so we thought bandom/Torchwood was the best weird-but-amazing crossover ever. Well, yeah, NO. I think I win at this, seriously.

Title: With an Unknown Past
Fandom(s): Torchwood/Breakfast at Tiffany's
Characters: Captain Jack Harkness, Holly Golightly
Warnings: none.
Words: 111
A/N: Seriously, you guys. Torchwood. And Breakfast at fucking Tiffany's! (I knew I would use this tag again at some point.)

you needn't care, you look beautiful all of the timeCollapse )

Macbeth!fic, written for _commonwealth via the Secret Santa at shakespeare140.

Untitled (as usual, because I am useless)
Fandom: Macbeth
Pairing: Macbeth/Lady Macbeth
Words: 479
Set: a few years before the play.
Rating: U
Challenge: "happy Macbeth & Lady Macbeth fic of any rating". I think I did pretty well considering the way I usually seem completely unable to write happy things.

in which lady macbeth tries to be a good little girl, and very nearly succeeds.Collapse )

50 Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead Sentences
Rating: no swearing/sex/violence, but much death-related stuff. If you've read/seen RAGAD, you're okay with this.
A/N: Written for 1fandom, from theme set #1, and due in a long time ago! =S I started this more than 6 months ago now...
Slight play-verse bias.
Beta-read by the marvellous cryforthemoon - thanks to her for putting up with my weird punctuation and the occasional anachronisms! =]

'Death, I imagine, is something like being stuck in one of those moments when one turns to look at a clock and it seems an eternity before a tick marks the passage of a single second.'Collapse )

Well, phew.

Hello. :) My name is Lizz, though that which we call teenagelogic by any other name would smell as sweet.

oh_muses is my inspiration journal, which is a lot like other people's fic journals apart from the fact that my posts contain nothing but ideas about as often as they contain actual fic, because if I wrote fic from all the ideas that came into my head I would likely go insane.

If you're dying to write something I post, comment and we'll talk about it, but generally I don't imagine I'll want to stop you from writing whatever it is that tickles your fancy.

Thanks for reading!
